1.1 Sequences
In the sequence of triangular numbers, thenth is given by the formula
Asequence is a number pattern in a definite order. Each number in a sequence
is called aterm. For example, in the sequence of triangular numbers,
1, 3, 6, 10, 15,\u2026,

The first term is1, which is usually denoted byT(1). Similarly, the other terms
can be denoted byT(2),T(3), \u2026etc. the(\u2026) at the end means that the
sequence continues infinitely.

General term can be
regarded as the formula
generator of the
sequence.

This is called the general term of the sequence

Progression\u2019 and \u2018Arithmetic
Progression\u2019 can be found in the
past HKCEE questions on or
before 1996.

This sequence with a common ratio between consecutive terms is called
a geometric sequence ( or geometric progression, G.P.)
1.1 Sequences

Apart from geometric sequence, there is another well-know sequence. This kind of sequence have a common difference between consecutive terms, and is called arithmetic sequence ( or arithmetic progression, A.P).
